A 29-year-old Saukville man accused of contacting his ex-girlfriend in violation of a court order and threatening to send compromising images of her to others was sentenced last week to a year in the Ozaukee County jail for violating conditions of his bail.

Robert A. Crnkovich was sentenced by Ozaukee County Circuit Judge Sandy Williams after pleading guilty to felony bail jumping during a Jan. 10 hearing.

The case dates to July 22, 2022, when Crnkovich’s ex-girlfriend called deputies to her Town of Saukville home to report that although Crnkovich was not supposed to contact her he communicated with her that morning via social media, text messages, phone calls and FaceTime.

She said Crnkovich sent her screenshots of videos of her having sex and told her he was going to send them to other people, according to the criminal complaint.

A deputy recovered the screenshots of the videos from her phone and said the woman was upset about them because she had not given Crnkovich consent to record her, the complaint states.

The woman told deputies that despite the court order prohibiting them from having contact, she and Crnkovich had been working on their relationship, but when Crnkovich called her on July 22 he said he  had just been using her to make himself look better in another case against him in which she is the victim.

Crnkovich was charged in February 2022 in Milwaukee County with strangulation/suffocation and aggravated battery, both felonies, and misdemeanor disorderly conduct.

He was released from custody later thatmonth in lieu of $4,000 bail and ordered not to have contact with this victim.

That case is scheduled to go to trial next month.
